DUBAI, 21st June, 2017 — Over 1.9 million passengers are expected to pass through Dubai International Airport during the heightened traffic of Eid holiday, according to Dubai Airports, which is lining up extra staff and an exciting array of activities, promotions and entertainment in the build-up to the Eid holiday rush.

As is the case during each peak traffic season, Dubai Airports, in collaboration with airlines and other partners at DXB, is taking a number of steps to ensure passenger volumes don’t affect service.
Dubai Airports will augment staff levels and employ passenger flow monitoring technology that allows the airport, airlines and control authorities to detect and deploy staff to areas of high passenger concentration. Further, the airport’s new smart gate technology, which allows the use of Emirates ID cards upon arrival and departure, will scale down immigration transaction times to 10-15 seconds and alleviate congestion at immigration points.
